Royal Blood have just kicked off their UK tour in support of 2021 album, Typhoons. We can’t contain our excitement to see the duo performing tracks from this phenomenal release. Kicking off their UK run this Friday 25th March we’re here to gear you up and get you excited for the tracks we can’t wait to hear on tour. Royal Blood are a band that deserve to be played at full volume and here are just a few of our favourite tracks we’re hoping to hear in Cardiff!
First up it would be hard not to mention brand new release Honeybrains. This brand new track feels rough and ready and teases an exciting glimpse at new music from the English rock duo.
Next up, we’re excited to hear Boilermaker, another recent release and track from Typhoons. This track has the distinctive Royal Blood sound while also throwing in little sparks throughout that show potential changes in sound on the way. Toward the end with a truly funky sci-fi and rock edge, you’re left wanting just a few more moments of this perfect track to dive into.
Watching the music video for Hook, Line & Sinker is enough to get you ready and wanting to see this track live. This track beautifully shows off the highs and lows of Mike Kerr’s vocals. With a lot of Royal Blood’s music, you know you’re in for incredible guitars and lyrics that pull you further and further in with each word. This track is a perfect example of that flirtatious seduction that Royal Blood pull off so well.
Another more recent release Limbo, gives us something a little different again. With a softer opening and more electric pop sound, this track speaks for itself on why it’s good. Limbo stands out from the rest of Royal Blood’s discography; and for good reason. With those distinctive and addictive vocals, what more could you want than to hear this live?
When you think of Royal Blood, Little Monster, is probably one of the first tracks to come to mind. With a heavy guitar presence and bordering on seductive sounding vocals, this track is a truly defining one for the duo. Its chorus is one you simply can’t just listen to, you really have to sing along. All throughout, the instrumentals of this track are bold and exciting, leading up to stunning guitar and drum solos that stand so well on their own.
Everything about Trouble’s Coming screams a song that you don’t just want to hear live, you NEED to hear it live. Acting as the opening track for Typhoons, you’re perfectly set up for an absolutely stellar album. With infectious hooks and a punchy base line, it doesn’t feel like one of their loudest tracks, but it certainly feels like one that’s full of angst to fill the biggest venues.
Of course we can’t leave Figure It Out off this list. With its distinctive opening guitar riff, you know within seconds you’re in for a good time with this track. Slowly building up tension with repetitive rhythm, it makes the build up and drop feel that bit more impactful. Building up to a wild ending of instrumentals this track shows off so beautifully just what Royal Blood are about.
